How do you add refrigerant to a GMC Yukon?
How to Recharge GMC Yukon XL Air Conditioner Refrigerant

Where is the AC recharge port located?
Both ports are located on the air conditioner’s metal pipes. The low-side port, like the name suggests, is lower on the pipes towards the front of the engine. While the low-side port is intended for recharging Freon, the high-side port is used for maintaining an air conditioner’s internal pressure.
